Forever Sponsors 5th Annual Gilbert Turkey Trot
Over the last 4 years, the Gilbert Turkey Trot has raised thousands of dollars directly benefiting children in our community. The attendance of local and out of state runners has grown every year with more families getting involved and making a significant difference in the lives of Arizona children. This year, about 2,500 runners are expected to participate on Thanksgiving morning and help Forever give back to the community through its foundation Forever Giving.
The Gilbert Turkey Trot will donate 100% of its proceeds to two charities, Families Fighting Blindness and AzBrainfood. Families Fighting Blindness supports research for a rare genetic syndrome called Bardet-Biedl (BBS), which causes blindness, obesity and many other health issues. AzBrainfood is a local group dedicated to providing food to the more than 65% of local community children who are on free or reduced lunch programs and have little to no food over the weekends. Forever Giving will also be making an additional contribution to AzBrainfood in the amount of $10,000.
